17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
I would think that my queasiness was more likely related to undercooked meat, but, then again, the Nets did emit a malodorous stench with their play in Philly.

The Nets will continue to be looking up at teams like the Spurs from echelons below. For now, I will look to be comforted by the Devils, a warm blanket of consistency in New York’s volatile sports landscape.
P.J. Carlesimo seemed to invigorate his club’s stars in winning 12 of his first 14 games as interim coach. Now, there’s a sense that there’s little he can do for a team that simply can’t make shots.
Brook Lopez had 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets won at Detroit for the first time since 2006, holding off the Pistons 93-90 on Wednesday night.
Contending for a championship? With this crew, that will be limited to owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s fantasies.

I haven’t done this in a while, so here’s a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from this year’s final regular-season edition of the Knicks-Nets rivalry.

What a far cry from the player I watched a few months ago. Of course, when Teletovic plays, that means others don’t.
“It seems like guys are content with the situation that we are in, and I’m f—— pissed off about us losing, especially losing the way we are losing,” the 11th-year player said following Wednesday night’s loss.
It wasn’t a Merry Christmas for the Nets who were dominated by the Celtics 93-76.
Joe Johnson scored 22 points, Gerald Wallace had 14 points, nine rebounds and six assists and the Brooklyn Nets held on to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 95-92 on Sunday.
